[Arrested in 1969 or 1970, 4 individuals]

Since it has not been possible to establish whether the Reform Baptists [initsiativniki] in Rostov (see Chronicle No. 16) were arrested in 1969 or 1970, their names are given separately and unnumbered.

ROSTOV [South Russia]

V. D. ZHOVMIRUK, b. 1894, presbyter.
[Arrested 7 July 1970, Article 190-3, two years strict regime ].

G. F. SHOSTENKO, server, [b. 1912.

Arrested and Imprisoned

According to this list, 67 people were subjected to repression in 1969 (Nos. 9-11 are given wrongly [i.e. should not have been numbered], since they appeared in the list in Chronicle No. 11.17). By adding the numbers appearing in the list in Chronicle No. 11 and in Part One of this list, it can be seen that 129 persons were subjected to repression for political reasons in 1969.

According to preliminary calculations based on Part Two of this list, 75 persons were subjected to repression for political reasons in 1970.
